Let the shade begin. After catching serious flack for last night’s episode. Nene has taken to her Bravo blog to provide a few extra details on the altercation between her and Marlow, and to address a few of her cast mates individually. Catch these T’s
The Bailey Bowl: I love a good challenge, so when I was told to gather up a team and meet on a field for some fun and competition, I was there! We started off by having some good competitive fun. Then here comes the BS!
Look, there’s a lot I could say, but instead I’ll just say this: Kandi, you have never seen me walk away from a fight and you have never seen me physically fight either have you? My son was at this event, and as much as I would like to be Mama Joyce and take my shoe off and hit somebody or drag someone down the street, I would never stoop so low to the gutter with my son around, so you are right! I know how to respect myself enough to walk away from something that no longer serves me, helps me grow, or makes me happy. In life you have to pick your battles; everything isn’t worth fighting for or worth the emotional investment. ~Nene Leakes
See what else Nene had to say. Continue reading
I have been in a relationship for about 13 months now. Im with a good guy I love him very much. We even knew each other for years prior to starting a relationship. But once we first started dating things went pretty sour. He started changing and acting different because his so-called “friends” had sh*t to say about him being with me. He at a point even denied he was my boyfriend but all in my ear telling me we were together. Mind you, he wanted me to be his senior prom date, although I have been out of highschool for about almost 3 years now. I had already put payments down for my dress and other accessories. Once I had did that the problems started coming and he started acting very funny. He even broke up with me because of those so called friends of his and he said he didnt want to be with me anymore when i knew in his heart he wanted to be with me, and said we could be friends. But i said to myself “child i will not chase you because i am not the police”, i had to still go on the prom because i could not get my money back for the deposits i had made. After the breakup the only contact we made with each other was strictly prom related. But i also noticed he started crawling back after he realized i wanted nothing to do with him. He wanted me to chill with him and come over and all those sweet nothings. I even asked what was up with that and asked what he really wanted because of this new sudden flirting but, all he says is “we are just friends” when he wasn’t even talking to any new girls. So once prom was over that night we got back together after he admitted he still wanted to be with me, he even started ignoring his so called friends and started to follow his heart. And things between us have been going great since then.
But sometimes in the back of my mind i still wonder how much i can fully trust him only because of the serious shade that has been thrown my way previously in our relationship in the beginning. I know he wont start talking to another girl or mess with her or anything like that, but i just sometimes wonder if he’ll throw the shade again and not be around me as much and hang with his friends. Everytime i ask where he is and he tells me i open find my iphone just to make sure he is telling the truth. He gets so upset and emotional and thinks i cant trust him. The thing is i do trust him, but what he did to me before hurt so bad it still hurts to think about it, and it makes me think things i shouldnt. So am i wrong for always tracking his phone to make sure he is at where he really says he is at even though i fully trust him ? Or should i just stop allowing myself to let past events make me think i’ll have future problems that’ll never really happen ?
Thank You Dineva,
I really hate to see friendships falling apart because of reality tv. Chile it is happening across all the standing black reality television shows. Nonetheless, the drama makes for good tv and makes for excellent blog talk. Everyone is all abreast of the Kenya, Nene, Marlow drama, so I’ll save time and skip giving you guys the back story. After last night’s episode of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta aired, in a true grown lady fashion, Nene & Marlo both took to Twitter to air out their grievances. Nene was going for broke with the tea she was spilling. Marlow fought back, and of course Miss Flea Market USA had to chime in. Catch these T’s Continue reading
About damn time!!! Quiet as its kept, Scandal has been gone for so damn long, I half forgot about it. My feelings of anticipation subsided weeks ago. I think I’m going to to have to watch a Scandal marathon to get me back in the mood. Nonetheless, in a true Scandal fashion, season 3.2 is sure to deliver. Is it me, or is Scandal kind of like Beyonce? Each time it returns, it finds a way to reinvent itself. Just when you think they can’t outdo themselves, they go to higher heights… Work out Shonda Rhimes! We see you.
When we last left the Gladiators in Suits, Washington’s top fixer, Olivia Pope, had just been burned by her mother (Khandi Alexander), who it turns out was the real terrorist of the family and was last seen talking to her daughter while standing in front of the White House. Meanwhile, papa Rowan Pope (Joe Morton) is out of a job after Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) — whose re-election will be a major theme in the remainder of season three — tapped Jake (Scott Foley) to head B613.
Over at OPA, the fixers are down one Gladiator after Huck (Guillermo Diaz) tortures and removes Quinn (Katie Lowes) from the family, with the newest recruit running back into Charlie’s (George Newbern) arms.
So that’s what we KNOW. What can we look forward to on the 2nd part of season 3?? It get’s DARKER and we delve DEEPER into the PSYCHE of ‘Olivia Pope’! What makes her TICK? We’ll get a better UNDERSTANDING this time around. ~The Hollywood Reporter

The thoughts and opinions expressed in this post solely belong to Anti intellect – FUNKY DINEVA DID NOT WRITE THIS
Admit it. You know I’m not the only one who would love to see a sequel to the 1997 classic, The Player’s Club. Here’s a few reasons why Ice Cube should revisit the world of one of his most iconic films.
1. The film is an undeniable cult classic in the Black community. Outside of Coming to America, I cannot think of another film that is quoted more often in daily life than Player’s Club. The film was filled with infinite wisdom and one-liners. Who can forget lines like:
“Make the money, don’t let it make you!”
“They couldn’t pay me enough to smell mother-f##kers feet all day!”
“Some of us got to use what we got to get what we want.”
“All the ladies out the mother-fucking dressing room, please!”
“You call that dancing?”
“You lucky it’s not Black History Month!”
2. The film showcased some of the most talented Black actors in Hollywood and it would be great to see them back on screen together. Can you imagine seeing Jaime Foxx, Lisa Raye, Monica Calhoun, and Terrence Howard back on screen together? Jaime and Terrence have gone on to become Hollywood heavyweights and Lisa Raye stars on VH1. Monica Calhoun was recently in the sequel to The Best Man Holiday. I can only imagine the kind of chemistry that could be captured if they were on set together again. Continue reading
In my opinion, R&B divas has started a movement that has many great artist from the 90′s trying to make a comeback. I won’t say that R&B is in a state of emergency, because things can’t stay the same forever. However, I will say R&B is in a strange place right now. We all remember Kima, Keisha, and Pam. They were the trio that made up the Bad Boy girl group Total. Totals smooth vocals mixed with their street style made them a staple in 90′s hip hop & r&b. In a true Diddy fashion, the group just fell apart, disappeared, and the fans have the slightest idea as to why.
On Valentines Day, Kima & Pam performed together for the first time in years at a special R&B lovers concert in London. While there, the two dropped by several radio stations and gave their two cents on the current state of R&B, social media, prospects of a comeback, and the other standard issues that dinosaur artists speak on. Catch these T’s. Ohh but wait. Notice Keisha wasn’t there. No Gawd Hunty. See Miss Keisha was smart enough to marry well. Her female intuition must have told her that there would be no money after Total. Keisha went off and married actor Omar Epps, had a couple babies, and is sitting pretty. No tea no shade, but when I first read that only Pam & Kima were in concert, I immediately thought to myself “damn skippy, the two that NEED the money.” Chile Cheese. Anyway, catch these T’s Continue reading
